As more and more users are primarily using their mobile devices to access the web, it’s becoming very important for the web apps to provide good experience even when the device is not connected. The common solution is to store data in a browser local storage and synchronize them with the server when there is network access available.
In this talk, tell the story of how we added support for offline data access to LoopBack, and explain the technology that makes this possible. A spoiler: we use browserify to run the same model code both on the server and in the browser, so users of the LoopBack framework don't have to do a lot of work to support offline sync for the models they define. There's more to it of course, which is outlined in great detail during the talk.
LoopBack is a backend framework built specifically for servicing mobile clients, making it easy to connect your mobile app all the way through to heterogeneous data sources like SQL, NoSQL or even SOAP services.
